Following their stint in the comedy show, many “Goin’ Bulilit” alumni (e.g. Kathryn Bernardo, Julia Montes, Nash Aguas, and Bugoy Carino) went on to pursue their careers in showbiz. Others, however, had their own endeavors away from the eyes of the public–like Trina Legaspi, who thrived with her screen name ‘Hopia’ as a young star.
We’re sure every one of you is curious as to whatever happened to the adorable, chubby-girl that was Hopia.
Well, we all know how Hopia turned out to be a fine young lady (Hashtag puberty goals!). But more than her beautiful coming of age, the Kapamilya star is also an achiever. After graduating from the show, she thought about pursuing her college studies in Miriam College, where she would earn a degree in B.A. Communication Arts.
“Well, siyempre malungkot siya talaga. Kasi eeling monapag-iwanan ka talaga. Pero kasi, at least, ngayon nagkaroon ako ng time na mag-focus sa school. Matatapos na ako ngayon, Communication Arts sa Miriam College. Hindi naman waste of time.”
Now, the young star looks up to her co-stars Kathryn and Julia, who are both considered as headliners in showbiz.
“But at the same time, dahil nando’n na nga sila sa taas, parang ang feeling ko.. may possibility, kasi sila nando’n na, eh, so kailnagang i-maintain nila. Eh, ako papunta pa lang. Parang feeling ko, mas madali para sa akin yon. Iniisip ko na lang na ako yung next in line. Nando’n na sila so parang ako na yung next, ganu’n po.”
With that said, Trina expressed her intention to make a comeback in showbiz–this time, not as Hopia, but as Trina.
“Ako na ngayon si Trina, na ready ng mag-take ng mga mature roles at hindi na lang puro comedy or puro teetums [sic]”
